The MD state fairgrounds should be a fine venue for ECLSTS. Timonium is north of I695, the Baltimore beltway, by a few miles, right off I 83, very easy to get to. It is NOT in Baltimore. About 45 minutes south of York, PA. Like the Expo Center, it has a racetrack, and multiple buildings for various public events, and was originally used for a lot of livestock and agricultural events. These include at least 5 train shows yearly, the GSMTS which has many hundreds of tables and layouts, and is of course an all scales show. The grounds are also immediately adjacent to the light rail line. The area is heavily developed with stores, restaurants, hotels and the like. I would assume that ECLSTS would be held in the “Cow Palace” which is the largest venue there, comprising 3 rooms, not unlike the York show.
Hope to see you all there next year.
